The 50th International Eucharistic Congress will be held in Dublin from the 10th – 16th June 2012. I can just picture us all sitting in the rain in the main arena at the RDS, and in Croke Park, singing Though We Are Many, the official anthem for the event. Note to self: next time you see decent rain gear, buy it! Click on the Radio Boo link below to listen.
Though We Are Many - (Bernard Sexton)
Though we are many, we are one body,
we who come to share this living bread;
Cup of salvation, shared among all nations,
nourishing us now and evermore.
1. We gather in this place
round the table of the Lord.
Christ's presence is revealed
in our communion and his Living Word.
2. Now our communion recalls
Christ's death and resurrection.
This living sacrifice
is our salvation now and evermore.
3. And through this shared Eucharist
we are the living Church.
We witness to Christ's love
His living body active in our world.
